About Us

Nonprofit Banner Thunderbird Medical Center opened in 1983 and has been growing ever since to meet the health care needs of the communities it serves.

The hospital is currently ranked one of the top hospitals in the Phoenix metropolitan area by US News & World Report and is a recipient of a prestigious "Best of the West" award from Westmarc in recognition of the hospital's contributions to the region.

The 890,000-square-foot acute-care facility is on 33 acres on the southwest corner of 55th Avenue and Thunderbird Road in Glendale, Arizona. A recently completed $290 million expansion project added a spacious and comfortable main lobby, a patient/family library, a heart and vascular center, state-of-the-art surgical suites and a 200-bed patient tower to the campus. The new tower includes a new Emergency department and all-private rooms.

Patients who choose Banner Thunderbird for their care can count on receiving outstanding care and an unparalleled patient experience.
